Prayer Request

Hurricane Ike, a category 3 Hurricane with 115 mph winds is bearing down on the Caribbean.

It looks as if, the Turks & Caicos Islands and Cuba will take a direct hit from this storm and the effects could be extremely serious due to the high winds and flooding.

The Turks & Caicos have recently been hit by Hurricane Hanna and Cuba was hit last week by Hurricane Gustav, so they are just recovering in the aftermath. Another direct hit on these nations is potentially devastating.

Let's join together in prayer for our saints in the Turks & Caicos Islands and in Cuba. Let's pray that God will protect our saints, their homes and church buildings. Nothing is impossible for our God.

Report: In the aftermath of Hurricane Gustav & Hanna, we have heard from the leaders of our works in both the Turks & Caicos and Cuba and they have informed us that there has been no loss of life among our saints. For this we give thanks to God! Thank you for your prayers! However, there has been some structural damage to saints homes and churches; they have been without electricity and there are water and food shortages.

We have been in contact with CSI and they have agreed to help us within their means, however we will desperately need more financial help to assist our saints in the affected areas.

We are soliciting your help; please send any offering to: Foreign Missions Division-8855 Dunn Rd-Hazelwood, MO. 63042. Please designate the offering for: CAC Region Hurricane Relief.

Thank you and may God bless you for your prayers,
Rev. John HopkinsCAC Regional Director
